Very modern and equipped with high tech equipment. Some too complicated for us--needed help with setting the temperature and waking up with the TV. But they were helpful with most of that.

Great city center location

This is a nice newer hotel right in the city center of Dublin. Convenient for many bus stops especially the AirLink Express. The breakfast buffet was adequate. The room was spacious as was the bathroom, (compared to many small b&b rooms from the rest of my Ireland trip). The only ding was that we were on the interior side and our room was above a very noisy bar. You could really hear it all night long. Frankly i would have preferred no window in the room to the noise. I wondered if the street side was as noisy. It wasn't a deal breaker since we weren't light sleepers but be warned.

central location

Staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast spread was very good- eggs, beans, toast, muffins, croissants, yogurt, juices, coffees, teas, cereals, oatmeal, fresh fruit. Bed was really comfortable. Central location- we could walk over the bridge to Dublin castle and surrounding areas. Also central for tour bus pickups, Airlink and Aircoach

Night club immediately underneath rooms

Worst hotel stay ever! There is a full blown night club underneath the first floor hotel rooms (immediately under my room) , and you would never know it until later when the club opens. Also, mass amounts of club goers gathering outside and making noise until 3:00 a.m. Holiday in staff essentially told us it was our responsibility to let them know about the noise, and that they could not do anything for us because we booked through Travelocity and not directly through the hotel itself. I would highly recommend you remove this hotel from your site. Can Travelocity do anything on behalf of its custimers, since apparently Holiday Inn does not view me as their customer, but instead I am your customer. Paid a pretty nice chuck of change to stay here to and would have been better off anywhere else

Modern hotel in a central location

Location: Short walk from major restaurants and bars - including Temple Bar
My cousin and I enjoyed our stay at the Holiday Inn express, we were just a short walk from all of the major restaurants and bars, including the infamous Temple Bar. The hotel manager was kind enough to let us check-in around 7:00 AM, despite the check-in time being 2:00 PM. However, the overnight staff was not the friendliest, at one point suggesting they would charge us for breakfast, that is in fact free. Aside from that, everything was great!
